Are You Aware of Your Lone Working Legal Obligations

Monday, April 15th, 2019

Is it legal to work alone and is it safe? Working alone is not in itself against the law and it will often be safe to do so. However, the law requires employers to consider carefully, and then deal with, any health and safety risks for people working alone. Employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare at work of all their workers. They also have responsibility for the health and safety of any contractors or self-employed people doing work for them.
